Satara

Tourism in Satara flourishes due to its main attraction, the Kaas Plateau--a World Heritage-listed "Valley of Flowers" teeming with wild, colorful blossoms.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Yamai Devi, Sakhargadnivasini Temple, Kinhai Village, Satara, Maharashtra and Meruling Temple. When in Satara, make a side trip to see Krishna Koyna Pritisangam in Karad, approximately Karad away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Sajjangad, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ganapati Temple, steep yourself in history at Kalyangad Fort, and pause for some photo ops at Char Bhinti.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.

Satara District is a district of Maharashtra state in western India with an area of 10,480 kmĀ² and a population of 3,003,741 of which 14.17% were urban. Satara is the capital of the district and other major towns include Wai, Karad, Koregaon, Koynanagar, Rahimatpur, Phaltan, Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani. This district comes under Pune Administrative Division along with Pune, Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur. The district of Pune bounds it to the north, Raigad bounds it to the North-West, Solapur the east, Sangli to the south, and Ratnagiri to the west.The Sahyadri range, or main range of the Western Ghats, runs north and south along the western edge of the district, separating it from Ratnagiri District. The Mahadeo range starts about 10 m. north of Mahabaleshwar and stretches east and south-east across the whole of the district. The Mahadeo hills are bold, presenting bare scarps of black rock like fortresses. The Satara district is part of two main watersheds. The Bhima River watershed, which is a tributary of the Krishna, includes the north and northeast of the district, north of the Mahadeo hills. The rest of the district is drained by the upper Krishna and its tributaries. The hill forests have a large store of timber and firewood. The whole of Satara district falls within the Deccan Traps area; the hills consist of trap intersected by strata of basalt and topped with laterite, while, of the different soils on the plains, the commonest is the black loamy clay containing carbonate of lime. This soil, when well watered, is capable of yielding heavy crops. Satara contains some important irrigation works, including the Krishna canal. In some of the western parts of the district the average annual rainfall exceeds 5 m.; but on the eastern side water is scanty, the rainfall varying from 1 m in Satara town to less than 30 cm in some places farther east. The district is traversed from north to south by a railway line, which passes 15 km east Satara town.
